C4C475 Sympathy Duo Sketch Card

Hello my crafty friends

This is my first post of the day. I wanted to share one of my Easter Cards for Easter Week here on my blog so I will share my card Easter Card #6 later this morning.

Because it's Saturday, that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog. Our March hostess is Frances Byrne and our Guest Designer Barb Anders - Paper Pursuits. I've long been a fan of Barb's creations!

The third Saturday of the month is a Sketch Challenge and below is the sketch for this week:

I enjoyed this sketch, and it's one I will use again. I had picked up this pad of foiled patterned paper on the Stampin' Up clearance rack, as I thought it would make pretty cards to donate to my Mom's nursing home. Since I'm also running low on sympathy cards so I decided to use some of the paper to make two sympathy cards for my stash.

I had picked up this circle word die from the Stamps of Life - it will work great with a number of my background dies etc, but it also ended up being perfect for the sketch!

Each card is the same inside as well, with a stamped greeting and flower bunch. I added some diluted ink with a water brush to add coordinating colours to the flowers.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy4Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C475.
